At the risk of sounding like a witch, Katwise is the originator of these coats: http://www.etsy.com/shop/katwise?ref=seller_info
I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but I think credit where credit is due is a good thing, too. Just a quick nod to Kat saying that you were inspired by her ideas/work, etc....
Your ideas are lovely & different in may ways-short hood, laced back & they are really cute. When I spring off others ideas I mention it in my listings.
As I said, I know I sound like a real B&*%$H. But it is Spelled With a W.

Marion, Katwise did not invent this kind of coat, they have been made by people for a long time.

You may well be right and in that case SmarmyClothes is still not the originator of this pattern.  Kat began selling them on etsy in 2007 & selling them from her bus before that. The Queen of Hearts coat was made in 2011 & as the maker says of the Cheshire Cat coat, "the pattern is my own." So, either everyone is wrong and they have all copied a pattern that was created in the 60's when most of the first "home use" sergers came to be,  or more likely, one coat inspired the next. There are quite a number of Katwise-type coats on etsy now & all claim to be "original" patterns. I think the Queen of Hearts  coat is adorable & as is her CheshireCat coat she made. She is very talented. I just think it is important to not claim to be the inventor. It is just as good to be the reworker of the invention but you just need to say so. It can also save some legal headaches later. My oils & incenses that I make are all for just that reason.
I am really not trying to step on paws.

I just love this coat. I had seen the other one you made and thought it was great too, but I like this one even better. I think it's very wearable and yet fun.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?

I want a new machine just for these kind of sweaters. I love the lacing you added, it just makes it more queen of hearts like.

Firstly i want to say that this is absolutely a gorgeous piece of artwork. I really love that people are taking old stuff and making new great things.

that said in my honest opinion it doesn't matter who's idea it was originally. If the artist created the pattern herself who cares. It is her design and talent that makes the work wonderful.  The only way i would think it would be wrong is if someone took a piece of work that someone did took their name off it and claimed they made it themselves. For example taking the Mona Lisa  and  putting your own name on it and claiming you made it . Absurd yes, but very true.

what i would be really curious about is if we can get a tutorial or even a small idea how you went about this. Like one of the previous posters said is one of these coats possible without  a serger. Crafters should be able to make things that we see with our own creativity and unique design Smiley 

thank you so much to both  the creator of the queen of hearts coat and katwise for their awesomeness. beautiful design and great inspiration.

Love it!

As to the other topic, there's a huge difference between claiming an idea to be all original and drafting your own pattern.  Fashion has been copied, imitated, and evolved for centuries - always has, always will.
